Asian Americans suffered greatly from racism in the early 1900s. Chinese Exclusion act in 1886 prohibited Asian Americans from entering the US. Later, in the early 1940s, Japanese immigrants were sent to segregated camps because the government did no trust them. America was very racist toward people of Asian ancestry during World War

This picture shows Japanese Sagregation Camps.  During World War 2, Japanese Americans were forced to leave their homes and property and go to segregated camps.

In this picture, some Japanese Americans are leaving segregated camps while others are staying. This picture shows that Japanese people suffered in camps. Camps were like prisons without plumbing or cooking facilities

This is a map of Japanese segregated camps in America. Most of them were in California because a lot of Japanese Americans lived there. Most camps were located in deserts and on the West Coast.
